GPS power supply
« on: 05 October, 2014, 06:06:45 PM »
In my owners manual, it says that there is a gps power supply under the instrument cluster

Obviously being thick but infant find it on my 12 plate 1050sE

Any pictures to enlighten me?

There's no power supply from the factory.  Triumph offers the wiring harness that connects to a pigtail provided from the fusebox.  It's marked with blue tape.  It's right next to the pigtail for the heated grips.  Both are marked with blue tape. 

I've hooked up both, but I didn't take pics when I installed them.  Yes, you have to basically take off the front end to get to the wiring.

After some thought, I replied, "Doesn't matter, as long as I'm going."

Yep, you need one of these http://www.triumphinstructions.com/proddocs/a9938122-en.pdf

And long fingers with 12 joints each if you want to get to the connector without taking any plastics off.

Thanks for the information- very helpful

I can't help thinking that a 12v cigarette lighter socket would be more use for more things

Dug out an old picture of front wiring,hope this helps.(See attachment below)
Note these are triumph connectors for their components.
There is also a connection,under the injector tubes,accessed from under the frame, left side.tucked up with cable tie,for a triumph power socket.
Check out your wiring diagram,if you have one,for colour.Should be Black& Purple wires.

It depends on your setup really. I have this rigged up to my tomtom cradle and a separate 12v socket. Sometimes the 12v stuff works loose while I am riding, but the gps cradle always has solid voltage this way.

I had a similar experience until I installed Powerlet sockets and plugs.  The plugs don't back out of the socket.

Getting back to this...
Did I understand right: there is a plug available for GPS power under cockpit fairing?
If yes; are there differences between Tiger models (i.e. plugs available)? Mines gonna be > 2016.
And you need to have a wiring kit (Triumph accessory) to connect your GPS to this plug.
No need to do the wiring from GPS to battery. Correct?

Sorry to disappoint, Triumph decided to remove the GPS plug on the latest TS as the bike has a USB connector under seat????  Anyway, most of us have taken the feed from the L/H sidelight wiring
